The new experimental ambient album from Meteer. This is another triumph! Meteer once again delivers an album of immense beauty.

The second release on BFW from Vladislav Buben is nothing short of wonderful. The hypnotic drones that appear on 'Emblem' are there, but now coupled with fantastic world beats and deep bass lines. In his own words: When winter goes away and spring comes along, on a dark evening, when the sky is ink-blue and the lemon-looking moon shines upon the landscape, the last snow - the final winter trace - starts falling. It covers the ground with a white blanket and the local cat strolling across the... Topic: vladislav, buben, bfw, recordings, ambient, experimental, out of doors
